Princess Diana's matched-up dressing is almost too princessy, and the hats of Sarah, Duchess of York, are atrocious, if you ask Patricia Underwood. But she doesn't critique the royal fashion just to be mean. Underwood is considered royalty herself, in a manner of speaking. She's the queen of hats. The slightly eccentric, near-famous British designer has done as much as any woman in America to bring custom-quality head wear to the States.

I was very surprised to learn that Arsenio Hall only wears leather pants on TV ("The Happiest Man in Show Biz," by Beth Ann Krier, Dec. 27). It must have been Arsenio clones I saw at the Lakers game with Eddie (Murphy)! and at the Pointer Sisters concert. Both clones had on leather pants and leather baseball caps. Oh!! I know, it was Arsenio's evil twin brother, Pomino. ROSLYN McKINNEY North Hollywood

Finally, irate movie fans have reported the booing of commercials being shown at Cineplex theaters. I had the audience ready to storm the screen at a 5 p.m. "Princess Bride" showing at the Showcase on La Brea. There was only one other person in the audience at a 5 p.m. "Hellraiser" show at the Purple Pizza Palace, but we hissed and booed in satisfying unity though separated by five rows. Despite what the Cineplex people say their audience surveys show, a Diet Coke commercial with penguins and the Pointer Sisters is, by definition, not an artistic event.
